    Former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback David Garrard has agreed to a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins, Garrard's agent confirmed to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

    The Dolphins settled on Garrard after being spurned by almost every free-agent quarterback they courted this offseason.

    Both Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn chose to sign elsewhere after visiting with the Dolphins and new coach Joe Philbin. Former 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, who visited the team Sunday, will likely return to San Francisco.

    Garrard sat out 2011 after being cut by Jacksonville days before the start of the season and eventually underwent back surgery.

    I like Matt Moore too.

    Borderlline starter, would be a great backup to a great QB.

    I thought they really stepped up torwards the end of the season, starting out 0-7 then ending the season 6-10. But trading Marshall caught me off guard. There best player for only (2) 3rd round picks.... 81rec for 1214yrds and there next reciever is davone Bess? :thumbdown

    Think their in for alot of hurt this yr

    That GM Ireland must be a real peach -- no one wants to play for him. Remember last year he wouldn't release Rosenfels so Texans could use him? Then released him in November. Not a way to win friends.


    Sage is with Minnesota.

    Yet on NFLN last week, all the talking heads just knew that Manning, Wayne, and Clark would probably go to Miami and form a Miami Colts team down there.

    Those guys know nothing.

    Honestly, why is Miami so down on Moore? He actually brought them to respectability.

    Since when has Miami been an astute judge of talent in the last several years? This new GM has done nothing for that team but scare players away apparently.
